I would say THE ultimate kick for every pilot, pax, flightsimmer and also photographer - taking off and landing on the hottest (hard) runway in the world.

I would say that the hottest runway would be Dubai, or Bahrain Intl.

Swedish commercial flying cannot be conducted from runways with a slope of more than 2% without special permits. Same in France? The US?

When I first saw the topic, I though it referred to the most frequently used runway. Probably some airport like DCA where they only have 2 (one of which can handle the MANY jet operations)

@ Heliport

I agree with you. CVF is a great airport ... more like a strip. It's always great to see planes land and take off in Courchevel while snowboarding at the fantastic slopes of Les Trois Vallees.

I also think SXM great!

SESM in Equator is in a crater. Try it in flight simulator.

Awesome suggestion Pascal, I gave it a try (SESM) and could barely make a straight out departure in a Lear 35 even with empty fuel... Tried it with a full Cessna 206 and had enough space in the crater to keep doing climbing turns before finally making it out.

AFAIK at the moment are no longer airlines flying to CVF. The last one was Air Savoie with a DHC-6 from GVA ... until it had an accident at CVF!

Double Eagle, NM. High altitude and hot and humid as h-ll! I remember having a 5-digit dens. alt. Used most of the (long) runway at T/O in a fairly light loaded 182! Climb rate was close to being negative... =)

Anyone see an educational film called "Density Altitude" with some bozo, his wife, and a new Beech 25? I believe he flew into the highest airport in the US, then proceeded to some hot airport something like +7,000' in altitude, and the runway was about a 1000' irregular strip of dirt next to a fishing spot. Evidently, you can't even get a piper cub in there mid-day.

SSTjumbo -

would be interesting to buy that movie. Do you know how to get a hold of it? FAA? Jeppesen?

Yes it's quite hard to take off SESM. You can only take off from one side.
